Andrew Davies and David Blower attended the Cannock Chess League 2016 AGM on behalf of the club on Tuesday 10th May 2016. With most of the stuff being routine for AGMs the proposed changes to the grading limits was always going to take up a bit of the evening, as it is an important issue.

Brewood managed a nerve-jangling, last gasp victory over Lichfield to clinch a place in the semi-final of the Chase Trophy, in dramatic style. The final and deciding game of the evening saw a large crowd of spectators gather round board two, as Mark Keady settled the game in Brewood's favour, with what was more like a blitz finish, rather than a quick play finish, after a long evening.
This had followed an earlier “touch move” inci...Read Full Post »
